Elderly & disabled family members

If you or a family member has a special need or a disability, you should address these issues as you are preparing your family's emergency plan.

  • Carry a health information card if you have a special need. 
  • Evaluate your capacities, limitations, needs and surroundings. 
  • Determine the type of help you might need during an emergency, and make appropriate plans. 
  • List the information you might need, such as your doctors, medications, your specific disability, allergies, equipment needed etc. 
  • Keep all necessary medication and supplies on hand for at least a seven-day period.
